The ultimate purpose of education, from our view, is to teach students to ask and answer the question, “How do I want to live my life?” We view our task as providing them with the tools they will need in order to answer this question to find and walk their path in life. MG21 uses a hybrid approach for enacting our vision. One part of the program emphasizes 21st Century content knowledge and expertise in core subjects (language arts, art, mathematics, social science, science) using a thematic, integrated curriculum (TIC) in a classroom setting. The other part of the program uses a multifaceted project based learning (PBL) model wherein students use 21st Century skills to link the area of focus for their projects. This workshop focuses on writing integrated curriculum for teacher-led project based classes.
